Parable of The Old Lady and The Needle
One old lady lost a needle in the house, But she was searching for it outside
In the moonlight.
One man asked her:
"O lady, what are you searching here?"
She replied: I lost a needle in the house;
There is darkness inside;
So I am searching for the needle here."
Worldly people are like this old lady.
They are searching for happiness in the object,
Where real happiness does not exist.
Look within; control the mind;
You will find the object of your quest in your own Atman.
